“Charlie’s talent and creativity comes through in everything that she does, although her true passion and strength has always been her music” said Pattie Lublin, Charlie’s mother – and this seems to be true; Charlie is not only already an exceptional and well schooled guitarist and vocalist (spending the last 6 years She studying under Patti Dunham of Sea Cliff for voice and under Larry Meyer of Huntington for guitar and her last 6 summers at the Usdan Center for the Creative and Performing Arts) but she is also an accomplished artist and writer; winning the Nassau Region PTA Helen B.

Charlie recently drew a huge crowd performing at LaMotta’s Shorefront Restaurant in Port Washington NY. From the recognition she received at this performance she was asked to join Premik Russell Tubbs for “A Night Of Originals” at Huntington’s Cinema Arts Centre.
When Charlie performs, people are naturally drawn to her and moved by her confidence and style. She is currently recording in studio and is working on original pieces.
